DELETION OF PERSONAL DATA

Rhyton processes the personal data only as long as necessary. As soon as the purpose of the data processing is fulfilled, deletion of the data is carried out according to the standards of the deletion concept, unless legal regulations oppose this.

 

LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

The processing of personal data requires a legal basis. The GDPR names different legal bases in Art. 6 GDPR.

A legal basis for processing personal data is, for example, Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. This refers to the consent given by the user. The consent is earmarked. Processing personal data is also allowed in order to fulfill a contract acc. Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. However, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR must be interpreted broadly since the initiation of a contractual relationship regarding data processing is also included. This applies in particular to those cases in which the user uses the contact form or sending an inquiry or request for a demo on Rhyton in order to receive a non-binding offer. Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR describes the legal basis of data processing in cases involving a legal obligation to process data. Processing personal data may in exceptional cases be based on Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR. This requires the vital interests of the affected person or other natural person to be protected. This refers to cases which would lead to injury or impairment of life, limb, and health. For the initiation of assistance personal data such as the name, contact details and possibly health insurance would be required to be handed over. It is also possible that processing personal data is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The so-called “legitimate interest” is standardized in this basis, which is to be read with reference to the addendum reason 47 of the GDPR. In the legal sense, Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR is a so-called “standard of interception”, which applies unless other legal bases than those described above apply. When the standard of interception is applied, weighing the specific interests – that of the affected person or that of the data processor – takes place.

 

CONTACT

Through the website, www.rhyton.de is possible to obtain a non-binding offer. This will require processing different data to answer the request, which will be automatically saved for this purpose. A transfer of the data to third parties does not take place unless the user has given his consent.

 

DATA PROCESSING FOR APPLICATIONS

Rhyton offers the opportunity to apply for jobs via an application form and via e-mail. For this purpose, personal data is processed and stored for further processing during the respective application process.

In case of successful application and employment, the personal data is stored in accordance with the legal requirements. In case of unsuccessful application, the data will be deleted in accordance with the rules of the local deletion concept. In doing so the provisions of the AGG (German Employment Law), in particular, the existing evidence pursuant to § 22 AGG are taken into account.

 

DATA PROCESSING FOR MARKETING AND MARKET ANALYSING

Rhyton requests data from who request for a demo or submits an inquiry. In this case, Rhyton may use this data for internal market analyses or validate requests. This Data may use also in Rhyton’s marketing campaigns or send marketing offers which do not take place unless the user has given his consent.
